I’m very pleased to announce that I have been nominated for 3 LAMMY awards – Best New Lamb, Best Reviewer and Best Rating System. I had the potential of being nominated for a few others but there were so many amazing blogs in the mix that it’s not disheartening in the slightest to have only got the 3 nominations.
I would like to say a huge thank you to anyone who has voted for me thus far – Mark from Marked Movies, Keith from Keith & The Movies, and Ruth from Flixchatter all threw my name in the hat at the initial submission stage, so a massive thank you to them. If I have missed you out here, I apologise and I of course extend my thanks to you too. Also, a big thank you to Joel and David who have worked so hard to make the LAMMYS possible. So here’s a little blurb about why you should vote for me in the aforementioned categories…
Best New Lamb
The blog has actually been active now for over 12 months but this is my first year of taking part in the LAMMYS. It was a somewhat slow start and took me a while to build up a readership (something I partly blame on my ambiguous blog title), but I now feel a proper part of the movie blogging community. I try to pitch in with comments and ‘likes’ when I can, as well as taking part in blogathons and offering guest reviews. As with all categories, there are some truly brilliant blogs in the mix here and it’s an honour to be nominated alongside them.
Most of the posts on here are reviews. I mix it up occasionally with features and whatnot, but it is mainly reviews. I like to think I’ve found a good style of writing and hope that I offer both the positive and negative aspects of a film. I try not to be totally subjective and do try to recognise whether the film would appeal to other people rather than just my own tastes. I try to review as wide a variety of films as possible from new releases to classic films and everything in between. Again, I’m in very esteemed company with this one, but it’d be nothing short of amazing if you gave me a vote.
Best Rating System
The big one. I’m actually quite surprised I’m nominated in this one to be honest, must have been rather slim pickings. I just use pigeons instead of stars, nothing much more to it than that to be honest. Still, if you want to vote for me, I’m not going to stop you! Didn’t really do a good job of selling this one, did I? Still, my pigeons are happy 🙂
So there we go, that’s where we’re at. You can place your votes here, although you do have to be a member of the LAMB to vote. Whether I end up winning or not, it really is amazing to be nominated. However, I am practising my gracious loser face and modelling it on the below…
